Updated: Apr 11, 2023


The greatest asset and strength of the Enderis Park Neighborhood Association is its many dedicated volunteers. Friends, neighbors and businesses who give so generously of their time and resources to plan and bring together the many wonderful events and improvement projects for all to enjoy. To all of those who give many many hours or even just a few hours, we thank you for helping make Enderis Park one of the greatest neighborhoods in which to live. The Enderis Park Neighborhood Association Board recognizes and appreciates all the efforts of all of our volunteers. The EPNA Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes an outstanding individual, group or business whose unselfish and dedicated service to EPNA has made an outstanding contribution to the Association during the previous year.

The EPNA Farmers Market is getting ready to kick off its 4th season on Sunday, June 16th, 9am to noon. Our kick off Sunday (which is also Father’s Day) will once again be a very special event! Not only will we have our vendors offering seasonal produce and delicious treats, but there will be music, art projects and games for the kids, and food trucks parked along the park! Consider having a picnic with the delicious prepared foods the vendors and food trucks will have to offer! Bring Dad for a fun day at the park to honor him on Father’s Day!

The Farmers Market would like to thank WaterStone Bank for being our Presenting Sponsor again this year. For the past 4 years, WaterStone Bank has shown their commitment to our community by being a crucial partner to us. If you are interested in joining WaterStone Bank as one of our sponsors, please reach out to our Sponsorship Chair, Amber Simatic, There are several levels to support the Market and we are always looking for partners who care about our community. As one of the area’s only volunteer markets, we couldn’t do this without these important partnerships with our area businesses!
